A cast metal statue of the very handsome, matinee idol James O'Neill (the Father of author Eugene O'Neill) in his famous role as the Count of Monte Cristo which type cast him for the rest of his life. Eugene O'Neill's play, LONG DAY'S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT, is loosely based on the lives of his actor Father and drug addicted Mother and how it affected their two sons. On the underside of the base it reads: ACADEMY OF MUSIC N.Y. SOUVENIR 50TH TIME DEC. 3 1900 JAMES O'NEILL IN MONTE CRISTO. It measures 6.25" tall, the base 2.25" by 2.25". It is rather heavy and appears to be copper that has been plated with a patinated bronze.
Condition: The condition is good, though, as you can see in the close-up photos, there is a visible copper colored line where Mr. O'Neill's head is joined to his neck.
